I know I have lots of readers on my friends' list, and I hope you'll consider joining a Pick-For-Me Challenge.  If you have a long list or huge stack of to-read books, let a friend select your next reading selection.

My LJ friend, [ profile] kiwiria, wrote the following in her journal at the beginning of the year:

The last 4 months I've been part of a "Pick-For-Me" Challenge on Goodreads. The way it works is that you get assigned a buddy and then pick books from the other's "to-read" shelf that you think the other should read that month (plus a back-up book if the first choice is unobtainable for some reason). It's been great fun, and a huge success as well, as people tend to choose books they themselves have loved and therefore the hit-rate is generally really good :)

Anyway, I figured it would be fun to expand on it and have a cross-over challenge here. With so many avid readers on my flist I hope we could have a fun little group :) You don't have to have a Goodreads account - a "to-be-read" list anywhere would do the trick (Google docs, blog post, LibraryThing, whatever... as long as it's public).

It's time to sign up for the March Edition of the Pick-For-Me Challenge.

To sign up, post a comment with a link to your To-Be-Read list (be it on Goodreads, in a blog post, a google document... whatever! as long as it's publicly available). On February 20th I will close the sign-ups and assign a buddy for everybody.

Each person has until February 25th to pick 2 books (main choice + backup) from their buddy's TBR-list that they want them to read for the month of March.

End of March we'll return and talk about the books we've read.

I hope you'll want to play along! :-)

Feel free to spread the word on your own blogs - the more, the merrier :)

(PS: If you'd like to join, but have a busy March ahead of you - no worries, I'll post an April edition of the challenge come March 15th).

If you are a reader, and you aren't on Goodreads, for heaven's sake, join up!  If you are on Goodreads, and we aren't friends, look me up.  I'm bojojoti there, too.  Come play!
